Cry is a parody of filmic horror and comedy within a home video framework. Shot in small increments, it takes the form of a video diary which documents the experience of an infant growing into a child. The time-lapsed footage, taken over a 3 year period, is juxtaposed with a second video presenting a comical, highly-styled cat torture and murder scene starring a demented fictional character. Cry presents a concurrence of themes: the body in a state of flux, abject bodily functions, and morality documented within time based media. In the end however rampant fantasies and a sense of absurdity take over, mutating all possibility of rational thought.
